First and foremost, our dogs are our Companions! We have been involved in breeding, raising, training and showing Great Danes since 1972.

WE DO NOT HAVE ANY PUPPIES! If you want a Dane, please read Dear Mr. & Mrs. Pet Owner Letter. If you still think you have to have a Dane anyway, contact the Great Dane Club of America for a local breeder near you.
If you contact me, I will only tell you to contact your local Rescue group.


We teach private obedience lessons to dog owners. We believe every dog should be obedience trained, however we do not board and train dogs. We work with the TEAM. That is the only way the dog will learn to work within and for the family.

There is no reason a dog cannot be trained for both breed and obedience work, especially at the same time. Obedience dogs are trained to stand & stay & allow a stranger to inspect them! Wow, how much easier can it get? Dogs trained to stand/stay can easily be trained to free stand/bait in the breed ring which looks very exciting!

VOLUNTEERING FOR CCI - Canine Companions for Independence

On March 30, 2000 we received our first CCI puppy, Comet to foster for the next year. He is 3/4 golden retriever and 1/4 labrador. He is the sweetest little yellow boy. We trained him and returned him July 27th, 2001 to CCI for advanced training and matching with a handicapped applicant. He passed his advanced training and we turned his leash over to his new partner at graduation, 7 year old Veren, February 2002. We began anew with another puppy! His name is Ruston and is also 3/4 golden retriever and 1/4 labrador. He arrived October 3, 2001 at 8 weeks of age. He was returned to CCI for his advanced training February 22, 2003 and was matched with his new partner, Louise, as a Hearing Dog October 17, 2003! We returned home in February, 2003 with our 3rd CCI puppy, Liam II, who is a yellow 1/2 golden and 1/2 lab little boy. He has grown up to be quite a handsome young boy. See much more on his page.




I graduated Clayton College of Natural Health with a Ph.D. in Holistic Nutrition. I have been applying all of my studies to improving the lives of my dogs and my family. I have some info on the BARF diet which we now incorporate into our feedings. Please check it out if you are concerned about what you are feeding to your dog. I have put my dissertation on "Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy - HOD" here for the public's use to understand how feeding a giant breed can prevent or cause growth disorders.
